A recent U.S. Air Force reorganization has resulted in a name change at one of the best-known Air Force research laboratories. What has been known as the Rome Laboratory in Rome, N.Y., is now the U.S. Air Force Research Lab Information Directorate, a subsidiary organization to the Air Force Research Lab at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio. Rome is the Air Force center for the advancement and application of information systems science and technology for aerospace command and control, as well as for moving that technology into air, space, and ground systems. One of the directorate`s first orders of business was awarding a contract to Raytheon E-Systems of Falls Church, Va., to create new microelectromechanical RF circuit elements and tunable filters that will enable the development of a small, low-cost, multi-band, multi-mode radio. - J.K.
